National School Walkout Day
At 10:00am on Friday, April 20th, the 19th anniversary of Columbine, students around The City of Richmond, Virginia, and the country will be walking out of school in protest of the government’s inaction and inability to address school shootings.
In Virginia, students will be protesting out front of their respective schools at the beginning of the day. Then at 1:00pm, students and citizens from across the state will convene in central Richmond to protest and fight for action together at the state capitol (Specific details will be released in the coming weeks).
It’s time for change. It’s time for action. Let’s fix this in Richmond, Virginia, and our country.
